Half way to 50!!!!!

Did anyone else get depressed on their 25th birthday? Or am i just weird? Now i know 25 is still young, but it just sounds really old to me . I 'm no longer in my early twenties. I'm only 5 years away from being 30!!! I'm half way to the big 50. Ahhhhh!!!! Where does the time go? Now i know it's just a number, Because truly i don't feel a day older than 19. (unless i have to sit on the floor for a long period of time.) So why am i soooo not happy about being 25? And if i am this depressed now, what am i going to do when i turn 30!!!! oh well, nothing i can do. i guess, we all get old someday, right!!!!!!! Anyways, about my birthday. After church we ( the whole family) headed over to my parents house for a party. We had a awesome dinner, watched the grandkids put on a play. And even played a game. i opened up all my presents and then had a yummy dessert. It was great being back home for my birthday. I don't remember the last time i was home with the family on my birthday. It was a real treat! Thanks for all the great gifts and money. Love you all!

Pictures of the HOUSE!!

My mother in law Mary still hasn't been able to visit, and last time i talked to her on the phone she asked if i had any pic's of the house I didn't!! So since i was really bored this afternoon i decided i would take some pictures! So here you go Mary.

This is the front room.

This is our dinning room

This is the Kitchen.

This is part of the family room. James is always over playing video games!

This is the Boys room. Brogan has a big boy bed!

I love this quilt my mom made. MAn she has mad talent!!!

This would be the play room! This is my favorite room in the house. I can just tell the boys to go to their play room, and i don't see them for an hour at least!

This is just a random picture of the upstairs hallway.

This is the master bathroom. You can't tell from the picture, but there is a big soaking tub!!!

Well Mary, can't wait for you to come and visit. Hope you liked the pictures! See you soon!!

You think you have it BAD!!

I have noticed that a lot of my friends have been blogging about their little ones getting into trouble! So i thought,.... hey, why not! I'll join them. ( Maybe it's a stress reliever, you know getting it off your chest!) I just have to say.... I have read many of your blogs and i just laugh thinking yep, mine have done that too. Coloring on the walls, (that's the least of my problems) playing with toys in the toilet, spilling their food on the carpet. Yes mine have done all of that and more..... Now Blaise isn't the problem. He is old enough now that i really don't have to worry about him anymore getting into things. It's Brogan!!!! It's those TWO year olds you have to watch out for. Here are just a couple of my horror stories. Where should i begin. Oh yes... the PLUMBING!!! Brogan went through a phase where he was fascinated with toilets! He just wanted to know everything about them.. How does it flush? Where does all the stuff go? What can i flush down them? To make a real long story short. We have had to take OFF EVERY TOILET IN OUR HOUSE. That's right! every toilet has been plugged to the max. In one toilet we found:a sock, a little toy skateboard, two ninja turtles, a truck, and to this day that toilet still doesn't work very well! There must be something still in it. ( wouldn't surprise me) Now the other toilets weren't as bad, but let's just say all the toys that were once lost are now found! Let's move on shall we to the paint. Yah yah kids spill food and juice on the carpet all the time. We as mom's are used to that. But what about paint. HOT PINK to be exact!!!!! Again it's along story of how he even got into the paint, but he managed to open it up and spill the hot pink paint all over our brand new carpet, and leather couches!!! Oh was i furious!!!! I spent the next several hours getting that paint out of the carpet and off the leather couches. ( That was a great day!) Yes my kids have also drawn on the wall with crayons, but that's the least of my worries. I can just paint over it, if i can't scrub it off. So to all my friends out there that have kids. Good luck, because you never know what your kids will do next!!!!

Update # 1

Well it has already been ONE month since I started working out!!!!!! And i did promise that i would update you every month until i reached my goal weight. So here is update #1. I'm still going strong. I've been doing my workouts every morning, drinking plenty of water,and really watching what i eat. And i think it's paying off! I have already lost 13 pounds. I still have a long way to go, until i reach my goal weight, but i am proud of myself for what i have accomplished so far. So until the next update... hope i can keep it up!
